September 27th 2010

Not the best of day’s weather wise with low cloud, light north east wind and almost constant drizzle unless you enjoying getting damp looking for grounded migrants on Napton on the Hill. There was a bit of activity but seeing them was proving difficult due to limited viewing of some of the sheltered but private areas. I managed 2 Spotted Flycatcher, 2 Willow Warbler, Whitethroat and 2 Blackcap with new birds being my first of the autumn Lesser Redpoll and Brambling.
Called in on the pond on the way home for the roost but the conditions were so poor you could not see those out in the centre well and concentrated on the Black-headed Gulls in toft hoping for a Med. Did not find any but they went berserk when a Great Skua charged through them, it disappeared in to the gloom heading west.
